When slow drains, blocked drains or backup is plaguing your home or business, hydro jetting may be the solution you need. Hydro jetting is an effective type of drain and sewer pipe cleaning. In fact, no other method is as effective for your plumbing. Contact Benjamin Franklin Plumbing plumbers for drain cleaning.
The hydro jet uses highly pressurized water to thoroughly scour away clogs, some tree roots, and even difficult to remove grease. Hydro jetting is the gold standard for businesses such as restaurants that deal with routine drain and sewer clogs in their plumbing.
Our plumbers have a variety of tools available for drain cleaning, and it begins with a video pipe inspection. The inspection utilizes the latest technology with a waterproof, high-resolution camera attached to a flexible fiber optic cable transmitting a real time, clear image of the problem to a monitor as it is fed through the pipe. Ben Franklin plumbers are able to view the inside of the drain and sewer pipe, and provide an accurate diagnosis of the drainage problem, and an effective solution.
The highly pressurized water of the hydro jet cuts through grease, hair, tree roots, and even removes rust scale. It accomplishes this with forward and rear facing jets to provide a full 360-degree cleaning action down to the pipe wall. Hydro jetting does not use caustic chemicals to damage the environment. The process utilizes water only for the most effective drain cleaning available.
Repetitive Drain Clogs
Grease blockage is a common cause of repetitive clogs, and with hydro jetting, your pipe is thoroughly free of stubborn grease, for a pipe that stays cleaner longer.
Tree roots are a frequent cause of sewer pipe issues. Tree roots spread out in the search for water, and can invade the sewer pipe, causing blockage, and leaking of sewer effluent. Hydro jetting can cut through tree roots. Once the roots are removed, Benjamin Franklin plumbers will repair the damage the roots caused to your plumbing.
Common Causes of Clogged Drains
Clogged drains tend to develop over time, common sources of drain clogs include:
- Fat, Oil, and Grease (FOG) cling to drain walls, growing over time until the drain is blocked. To reduce the incidence of a grease-clogged drain, allow it to cool and pour into a container that seals tightly. Wipe all the remaining grease you possibly can from cookware. Dispose of the grease in the trash, or carry to a recycling center. Never pour grease down a drain.
- The improper use of a garbage disposal is an additional common cause of clogs in the home’s plumbing.
- Hair and soap scum will clog showers, tubs and bathroom sinks. Drain screens can prevent hair from clogging the drain, and will catch food in the kitchen sink. However, you will need to empty the kitchen screen often to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria.
Differentiating between a clogged drain versus a clogged sewer pipe depends on the number of drains involved. Typically, when all drains are clogged or experiencing slow drainage, the problem is in the sewer pipe. However, when drainage problems occur in a single drain, the problem is likely in the affected drain.
